Preab Meadar Rhythm and Rhyme

Preab Meadar Rhythm and Rhyme

Friday, 22 November 2019, 8.00pm

Veteran Traditional music innovators Lorcán Mac Mathúna and Daire Bracken combine with sean nós dancers Liam Scanlon and Caoimhe Ní Mhaolagáín to create a mesmerising conversation of rhythm, between voice and fiddle, and Traditional dance. Based on Lorcán and Daire’s ground-breaking new suite of ‘dance-songs’, Preab Meadar, together with specially choreographed dance steps, this performance presents a truly unique combination of vocal, instrumental, and dance traditions.

Preab Meadar is based on the meters from a medieval Gaelic tradition known as the ‘Dán Díreach’. From this ancient and mysterious source comes a new tradition of electrifying rhythms. Drawing on inspiration from old and contemporary traditions, and from village dance celebrations which were once common all over Europe, In Tandem presents a visual and aural feast of dance songs that will have your toes twitching and lips humming. Intrigued? Well wait till you see and hear it!

“Boundary-transcending.” - Bernard Clarke, Lyric FM
